About the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards

The OSCCS supports the holistic development of the student experience by educating students about behavioral expectations and enforcing the Student Code through a fair and educational process that fosters campus safety, accountability, and personal/organizational development. The OSCCS ensures proper investigation and resolution of alleged Student Code violations or any other regulation as the University President and/or Board of Trustees may direct. The OSCCS adheres to the established procedures under the Student Code when resolving alleged conduct violations with fairness, integrity, and objectivity for all parties involved, consistent with the university’s educational goals.

The Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards (OSCCS) was formed office under the Vice President for Student & Campus Life and is responsible for engaging with our community about the values and expectations of all Cornell students. The OSCCS replaced the Office of the Judicial Administrator on  July 1, 2021.
